The 17th-ranked South Carolina softball team scored six runs in the second and four in the third on its way to a 10-1 victory Wednesday night at Carolina Softball Stadium at Beckham Field. The contest lasted five innings due to the run rule.

Mackenzie Boesel led the way at the plate with a 2-for-3 night with her three RBI coming in the second inning on a two-out, three-run double. That was part of a six-running that was capped by Kenzi McGuire who followed Boesel with a two-run home run to give the Gamecocks a 6-0 lead after two.

South Carolina (9-2, 0-0 SEC) has now outscored its opponents 89-28 (+68) through 11 games.
